Coleslaw Strikes Again

While I am fortunate enough to work from home about half the week, I do have to go into the office a few days, and my office is, frankly, freezing. I've been re-evaluating my sweater collection lately, and I decided I could use a big, chunky, cable and moss stitch cardigan, and I figured that it wouldn't actually take me too long to knit. So I picked up some Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Oatmeal and cast on in mid-February, thinking I'd be just a week or two away from a new layer in my office arsenal against the cold.

Enter Coleslaw.

She is the light of my heart and an absolute menace.

This was the third set of needles she's eaten from this sweater, so it's on hold AGAIN while I wait for a new set to arrive.

She's lucky she's cute.


  1. I suppose it's a good thing (in addition to being cute) that she's only chewing on the needles and not eating the yarn -- because that would slow down your knitting AND could result in some costly vet bills!

    1. When she was younger she ate half a handknit sock (it's going in her puppyhood shadow box lol) but fortunately she mostly prefers to run around with yarn in her mouth—leading to some truly incredible tangles!
